12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop Day 11 (Blog Candy)

Welcome to Day 11 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop!



This is a 12 day hop filled with anything and everything Christmas.

If you are coming from Theresa, you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Lisa as she is our lovely hostess.

There are some fabulous prizes and great sponsors for this hop so please make sure you follow the requirements for each day.

Here is the lineup in case you get lost...


Running out of wrapping paper?  Or need to wrap that last minute gift and don't feel like ripping into a new roll?  As I was trying to figure out what I would do for my Day 11 a little while ago, my mommom had told me about a gift wrapping idea she saw on the tv using cardstock.  I'm sure you can find this idea anywhere on the Internet, You Tube, Pinterest.  It's great for any occasion!  I wanted to share a gift that I wrapped for my aunt.  I recommend the cardstock wrapping with a smaller gift.


Recipe:
Paper is Recollections Jolly & Bright and from my stash
Ribbon is from my stash
Scrappy Moms Winter Wishes stamp set
VersaFine in Onyx Black
Spellbinders Nestabilities-Small Circle and Small Scallop Circle



For blog candy today I'm giving away a $10 gift certificate to MB's Treasurista.  To win, you must comment on today's post.  Please leave a way for me to reach you.  I will announce all the winners on Monday, December 26th. 


I'm going to give a big prize away to one lucky person.  The prize will be a secret for a couple of posts (the last day lol).  To win my grand prize, you must comment on all 12 days of the hop.


Reminder that some days may have individual blog candy besides my grand prize.


Please remember to stop back tomorrow for my final day!


Your next stop is Anita.

Very pretty wrapping. I did this last year when I ran out of wrapping, or perhaps it was for a birthday. I don't remember now, but love the idea.
